Donna Hay has heaps of great 'chuck everything in one tray the oven' dishes. I think she has one with chicken, olive, red capsicum, lemon, herbs and potatoes too.
A lot of my 'easy meals' have been mentioned already, but here they are anyway:
- Packet ravioli & sauce from cold section of the supermarket.
- BBQ chicken with store bought coleslaw and bread (literally means no cooking )
- Donna Hay quick pasta recipe (grated zucchini, chilli & bacon).
- Eggs on toast
- Ham sandwiches
- Pizza (pita bread as base)
- Tuna pasta bake (Leggos jar, stir through penne and top with cheese then bake)
- 'Picky dinner' (involves cheese/crackers/olives/bread etc)
- Loaded potatoes
- Omelette or frittata
Take-away options are really crummy for me, unless I do a 60km round trip. I always have home made soup, bolognaise sauce and easy things in the freezer. If I can't be bothered even doing those, eggs and toast or beans and toast are my lazy meals.
We do the continental honey mustard chicken on a bed of changs noodles...as a matter of fact we has it last night lol
Two skinless sausages wrapped in half a sheet of puff pastry, into the oven makes wickedly easy sausage rolls . Guess what we're eating for lunch?
I make a lentil salad when I am being really lazy. Just rinse a tin of brown lentils, stir in a small tin of tuna, a cooked bag of steam fresh veggies and some salad dressing. It is actually really nice, filling, cheap and easy. also nice to add some feta if I have some too.
tuna salad - tomato, cucumber, avocado, tuna, oil and salt
I have a freezer full of leftovers in single serve containets, otherwise we have what I call a "platter" which is a selection of cheese, rice crackers, and raw veges like capsicum, peas, beans, carrot, cucumber, celery, etc.which is more filling than it sounds. This week I have had salad rolls every night.
